was critical of the government's response to hurricane katrina. >> when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with the money. here's the money to rebuild. we're not going to wait for you to scratch it together because you're part of the american family. what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar in where's your staff for that money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. [ applause ] tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> now, a portion of this speech had been covered by several news organizations, including msnbc. during the 2008 presidential campaign but yesterday, the speech in its entirety was made available and posted at the daily caller. it included comments mr. obama made praising his pastor at the time, the reverend jeremiah wright. less than a year later, president obama cut ties with mr. wright after clips came out of the pastor's racially charged sermons. the obama campaign released a statement last night, calling the video a, qu
race in the katrina aftermath, and they say that nobody has even seen it before, but here's a speech they're talking about. we're going to take a look at it. it is june of 2007. then senator barack obama speaking at the university of virginia. looks like, of course, it was recorded at a stf have tv station, and that tv station, a cnn affiliate, and cnn covered a lot of the networks covered, as a matter of fact. it was not recently dug up, and it is not new. joe johns is watching the story very closely from washington. joe, first of all, in covering the candidate, i know it's not new. i mean, we all saw this speech. we covered it, and we covered the whole issue of reverend wright. very extensively with the president and even with the first lady in putting many questions to them about this. what's the fuss? >> well, suzanne, you know and i know this is a political year. it could be -- thinking they have an exclusive, running with it as soon as they saw it. either way safe to say, yes, this is old news. the reason it gets attention from conservative -- it's really -- he has never fully

made some comments about resources, he made some comments about federal response to katrina. i mean, it's just a damp squid and i don't think that -- i think if you look at most of the media today, outside of the one that chose to highlight that particular story, not many people are paying it much attention because it is really frankly not worth much attention. what's new about it? you tell me, tamron. >> nothing new about it. i thought you were going to compare to al capone's vault, a big television special here in the states. >> no, no, hitler's die ritz were better. hitler's diaries were better.are better. hitler's diaries were better. urge i have to switch you around to congressman ryan's tape the "huffington post" revealed where he is talking about 70% of american public want the american dream while 30% want welfare and look to welfare this is being compared to romney's 47% comment. is that a fair camp pairson there? >> well, i think you have to give mitt romney and paul ryan a great deem of credit. they are consistently ar r lyco matically wrong. they can't decide how much of the
. . host: laura is a republican. hi, laura, you are on. caller: i wanted to say to katrina, if you want to talk about common sense policies, maybe you need to listen to rush limbaugh and maybe you need to really listen to what mr. romney said about this economy. if you are concerned about poverty, do you know that the number one group tracked in poverty is single thing all households -- single female soul? you need to look at stuff that the conservatives are saying because they care about the portrait they don't want people trapped in poverty. they know what small businesses, which employs 60-70% of the citizens and in this country, taxed more. if you tax small business, they are not going to hire. i don't know how you don't figure out what mr. romney so eloquently said in that debate. talking about politics of the 1% or the 47%, conservatives want the best for all folks, and yes, we mean thewe don't want them trapped in poverty. we want them married, paying their taxes -- host: we will get katrina vanden heuvel's response. guest: yeah. listen, if marriage will promote the well-being of
companies are using it to make their product better. >>> and a ban put in place after hurricane katrina is back in the headlines. why tourists and victims of the storm are butting heads. >>> plus the redskins get ready for sunday's game against the falcons and the nationals pull out the rest of the season. sports breakfast up next. >>> as we head to the break, here's a look outside. some of the roadways wet this morning, still some fog out there, not as bad as yesterday. tucker has your forecast. julie wright has your traffic when we return. it's 7:09. it's 7:09. >>> making headlines, a battle is being waged in the lower 9th ward of new orleans. the city passed an ordinance back in 2006 banning tour buses from bringing people in to see the damage left behind by hurricane katrina. now, it wasn't being enforced until recently when residents started complaining about buses blocking streets and damaging roadways. but bus operators maintain that they and the city are losing tourism dollars. the city council is expected to take up the issue tomorrow to find some sort of compromise. tony. >
the reaction to hurricane katrina and the inadequate reaction to hurricane ka treena. it's an interesting strategy by mitt romney and his allies that they want to defend the bush administration response. >> it sounds like you're saying -- >> it's a weird strategy. >> it sounds like you're saying -- >> i'm not saying mitt romney is responsible or the romney campaign is responsible. i do think it's allies to that campaign and they have the responsibility to stand up and say it was wrong. >> stephanie cutter, while she was talking, she had a spanish language reporter next to her. can you hear that noise? there was a plane flying by and a chopper over her head. so, thank you, stephanie, for dealing with those distractions as well. >> and it's cold out. >> and it's freezing cold. going to warm up, though. cnn, of course, will have complete coverage of tonight's debate that starts at 7:00 pm eastern right here on cnn and cnn.com. >>> john berman has other stories making news. >>> american airlines going to inspect 47 of its boeing 757s after seats came loose in flight on two of its planes withi
as part of louisiana. first of all, i'm offended with that given with what happened in hurricane katrina and to put it together with 9/11 as well. this is old news when -- >> but it is old news. you didn't cover barack obama telling a large black audience that the administration couldn't see part of the united states. >> first of all, that's not what he said. >> yes it was what he said. he told a large black audience that the bush administration considered new yorkers part of the american community and floridians part of the american community, but he didn't consider them in new orleans part of the american community. that's telling a black audience who clearly understood what he was saying with the analogy of the bullet in the baby's arm that somehow they weren't part of the american community. >> unfortunately i have to leave it there. thank you both for being with us this morning. erick, i wish you were in studio. >> i think it would be more fun. >> we did have fun. >> we'll have more fun in the next hour. >>> 39 minutes past the hour. it is go-time. the first presidential debate take
president obamab talking about race, the reverend wright and hurricane katrina. what are voters telling you? are these videos resonating? >> these voters are so worn down not only from the primary here in the state of new hampshire but over the past several months with the attack ads, back and forth, i don't know that they recognize either of the candidates if they weren't in slow motion in black and white. at the end of the day, i think what the voters are looking for is unless it's an extremely radical video, showing something -- even the 47% video which seemed to resonate with a lot of the country, that wasn't as big of a deal here in new hampshire. what people are looking for is what their solution is for jobs, the economy and things that are more substantive than viral videos unless it's, as i said, something really extreme. >> we'll look forward to some answers, honest answers. paul westcott, thank you. -[ taste buds ] donuts, donuts! -who are these guys? -oh, that's just my buds. -bacon. -my taste buds. -[ taste buds ] donuts. how about we try this new kind of fiber one cereal? you t
response to the katrina disaster in new orleans, he did say that black people were frustrated living in the inner cities, not having any hope. none of which is inflammatory as the daily caller and sean hannity seem to think. >> maybe it is desperation as some critics are saying. the timing is key. to be fair, howard, this video tactic is being deployed by the other side as well. we pulled out this clip. this has popped up on the huffington post. >> gthe good news is survey aftr survey, poll after poll still shows that we are a center right 70/30 country. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe in the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> so, again, just context for our viewers that was paul ryan, this is a speech from last november. the whole speech has been on youtube since last fall. so my question to you, howie kurtz, are there really substantive points to be scored here by drudging up these all videos? >> there can be. i don't have any problem with it, people on either side drudging up old videos. it helps if the video you're drudging up has never been
during katrina. it was built using recycled material and runs on solar energy. we all know now, wolf blitzer, you are a fan of lil' wayne. >> that's right. for all the viewers who tuned in yesterday, you corrected me on that, wolf. >> once corrected brooke baldwin who kept calling rihanna riha a rihanna. >> it's good to know that one too. >> you're not the first cnn person i corrected on the air. >> from now i'm just going to call you lil' wolf. >> thanks, lil' lisa. a woman thought she stumbled on a rare find at a flea market. she bought this for $7, planned to sell it to the highest bidder. why the fbi is now saying not so fast. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's de
will be joined by ann coulter. we will talk about politics with katrina vanden heuvel, editor of "the nation." washington journal is live everyday at 7:00 eastern. >> americans are not the only people to have a september 11 in their national story. in santiago, chile there was a september 11 even that had a dramatic impact on chilean history and memory. military officers on that day had a full-scale assault on their country. it took over radio stations, police stations, and other centers of power. they stormed the presidential palace, charged through guns blazing. when they were done, the president of chile were dead. a these events led by an army general named agusto. -- augusto pinochet. what most chileans did not know at what many americans still do not know was that the coup of september 11, 1973 was the work of intelligence operatives -- american intelligence operatives that took their orders directly from the white house. >> saturday night at 8:00 eastern and sunday at 1:00 on c- tv." 3's "american history the editor for publisher of the report. this is an hour and a half. we are going

[laughter] and this is what i'm talking about. and sometimes the curtains are serious. humor is a great vehicle to express your opinion. but there are days when you take your foot off of your throat. when we are debating security versus civil liberty, and it is an uncle sam -- so, where do i draw the line? i really like the drawing. sometimes you actually talk like you did not draw it yourself. because it turned out well. but his posture is tortured. i have always liked this drawing. the president, of course, the current president likes to smoke. claims he spent. -- claims he quit. it is like unfiltered spending. he says i can't seem to quit. and republicans have their problems. people say it is my turn. from bulk, to mccain, to mitt romney. i was lucky enough to cover both conventions. i have to
